Pardon the pun... this kind of link is between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. An organism found in hydrothermal vents doesn't fit cleanly into either and is suggested here as a possible step towards multicellular life and mitochondria.

Although there is no citation, the original paper is credited as being in a recent edition of Nature according to this Uppsala University press release.
